Our Keyboard lessons are carried out in groups of 5 – 8 for an hour at a prearranged, regular time each week.
Ages are 6+ for our “Junior Play For Keeps” course and 9+ for our “Play for Keeps” course.
The studio uses state of the art Yamaha equipment including 9 top of the range Yamaha PSR keyboards.
Students will learn to play, read, write and improvise, music in a fun and engaging way. Playing well known Rock and Pop tunes to help hone their skills. They will learn not only piano skills but also to use the multitude of “voices” and special features that the yamaha PSR keyboards are capable of, such as playing full accompaniments and recording and sequencing their own backing tracks, making each student into a one person band/orchestra.
We encourage all of our students to take regular Graded Exams, as its a great way to build confidence and really drive home the skills they learn as well as providing a benchmark of their progress. These are however optional should you choose it’s not for you. Our grades are fully accredited to be equivalent to GCSEs at the lower end all the way up to A levels and UCAS points for university entry at the higher grade 6 – 8 end.
All Keyboard lessons are carried out by our professionally trained Yamaha Keyboard teachers. Our keyboard teachers are passionate about teaching, and care about their students progress.
They are also great musicians in their own right. They have a wealth of experience and skills to pass on to the students. Each one is an accomplished performer, having passed a minimum of grade 8 for their instrument. Many though are multi-instrumentalists and have other talents to compliment this. From award-winning composers, to virtuoso violinists and music tech experts.
We provide regular opportunities each year for the students to perform and showcase their abilities, Including our annual concert. We invite friends and family to a professional venue so students can perform in front of hundreds of people.
